Recital day is often the highlight in our dancer’s year! Many dancers start thinking about next year’s recital the day after their current dance year ends. We pride ourselves in putting together a professional production with great costumes, age-appropriate and fun choreography and a wonderful confidence booster for all our dancers, from the young to the young at heart!
Recital will be held in June with tech rehearsals the week before. Recital is a great opportunity for the dancers to show how hard they have been working all year and how far they have come!
In January, we start working on recital pieces and also order costumes. We often have parents come in to see the progress the last week of the month. During this time we ask that you do not share videos of recital choreography on social media. Pieces are not quite performance ready and we want our friends and family to be surprised at recital!
A $35 deposit per dancer per dance will be due November 1st, and the remainder of $35 due January 1st. One pair of tights per dancer is included in the costume fee.
Besides costume fees, we do not charge a recital fee. Audience members are required to purchase tickets to attend. Children 2 and under are allowed to sit on their parent’s lap. Children 3 and older are required to purchase a ticket. Tickets will go on sale in May 2019, and all additional information will be provided in the spring.
In previous years, we were unable to provide the DVD quality we’d like to and a digital download provides the high quality we are striving towards while also making the video more accessible and affordable. The fee for the digital download is just $8 and will be charged with May & June tuition. A link for all 4 shows will be emailed to you that you can view and download to your computer, smartphone, tablet, etc. You can still purchase a physical copy of the DVD if you’d like, for $22 (discounted $8 for the digital fee already paid) for one show and $5 per each additional show.
Keep an eye out for our Recital Handbook, which will be available in early Spring with all necessary recital information.
